I don't think it is earbuds that are making them do it, I think it is people ripping things, and downloading tracks at 128 kbps or less. They have to compress the shit out of new music to make it audible. BTW, I hate it too.

 

Cracked.com had an article the other day about why music sucks nowadays, and it was because studios push loudness instead of clarity. Check it out, the article is probably still on the front page, it was title "5 things you didn't know about the music industry" or something along those lines.

I don't know if it's actually earbuds that encouraged the production change, but idfnl isn't entirely off with his complaint about the way music is mixed now. Music, particularly that of certain popular/mainstream genres, tends to be compressed, and the highs and lows aren't as dramatic as they were in older recordings. Basically, the peaks have been cut off. A friend posted an interesting article about it on Facebook where they broke down a bunch of recordings to show the mixes. I might try to dig it up and post at some point.

@ MrG - that is some bullshit. i really hope the new gig pulls through.
you liek it? the hydroponics.

Thanks, Stitch. Yesterday was the third interview, and it was definitely a "let's make sure this guy isn't a complete douche" type of thing. It was much less formal, and it was mostly a chance for them to see if I'm a good fit. Fortunately, I'm not a complete douche, so I'm feeling pretty good about it.

Lame story MrG, I'd be right pissed with that also. I don't understand those who rise to power and make it worse, how can this happen?

It really is infuriating, and it's completely disrespectful. My guess is that it's a symptom of a terrible organizational culture that hasn't changed because management is entirely composed of long-timers who have simply shuffled up the ranks, but, regardless of the cause, it's terrible.

I still feel a bit under the weather. I have had this lingering stuffiness and cough, which is awful. I was considering staying in tonight, but the urge to go out is too great. I am not sure what to do.

Hope you hear some good news soon, M.

That third interview is probably where I fail the most because I am such a weirdo and don't like sports.

People who leave sleeve tags on their suit jackets or coats, wtf? Seems to happen more with women than with men.

They either don't know better, or are douchebags. I could make a rape joke here, but yeah.

I do that so others may know how expensive my garments were. Most people would not be able to tell otherwise.

As a fellow non-sports follower, I wish the common American man found a different topic to discuss when trying to relate to other men.

Whenever a conversation veers towards "last night's game," that becomes my cue to mentally check out.

I FEEL YAH BREH.

I feel bad for my boss because he tries to like "relate" and being human with me, but literally everything he is about (kids and sports) I have zero interest in. I mean he is a great guy and smart, we are just very different people. We usually resort to bitching about wives/SO.

I was very pissed off yesterday because ESPN was showing soccer games instead of golf. I mean, if they want to show soccer, why they don't leave all the rights to Golf Channel and everybody is happy? I hope they don't do it today and they show golf as scheduled or I'll be tweeting them a lot of things. ffffuuuu.gif

G, I think you have a new personal brand tag line there:

MrG. He's not a complete douchebag.

This is a good sign. I hope the offer comes soon.
